BLOG: Youth Issues? It’s an Endless List!
30 August 2012, 14:32
First of all, we need to stop calling 50 year olds and older middle-aged
men “youth”. Yes they have their issues too but majority of the Kenyan
population are youth, now this age group is wide and as wikipedia says,
“Definitions of the specific age range that constitutes youth vary”.
Youth issues are many today, from unemployment, to drug and substance abuse, to education or lack thereof. Which brings me to The Space.
The Space begun as an initiative to bring about a conversation with
youth from all over Kenya on social issues affecting them, the impact of
PEV, and civic participation.
This birthed workshops, festivals revolving on these themes and THE SPACE TV
was born. Though season 1 is over (it aired at 6pm Sat on NTV), they
are still engaging with the youth online to ascertain the impact of the
TV show and to also continue discussions on Leadership, National
Identity, Ethnicity and Responsible Citizenship. Hosted by Karen (Kaz)
Lucas and Mwafrika, the show is fun and full of surprises.
